Costal Morphology occurs wherever a body of water interacts with land. Studying how this interaction takes place has global significance. How to predict and control these interactions became the basis for this project. We generated this report to advance the understanding of this phenomenon. During the course of the project the beach profiles we designed were extensively tested with the designed wave scenarios. This project demonstrates how these interactions take place relative to each other. This report details our research and design conducted at Delft University of Technology.
